Dental Hygienist

Angela is originally from Maryland but moved around quite a bit with her dad being in the Navy. A lady of many passions, from sports to ready, but spending time with her family is at the top of that list. They often go out hiking or enjoy a day in, playing board games and watching movies. As a teen, she was inspired by her very own dental hygienist to learn more about the field of dentistry. That and her passion for people led her to complete her qualifications at Missouri Southern State University in 2007. She is detail-oriented and loves educating our patients on great oral routines and the latest in the field of dentistry. She has been with our team for over 15 years.


Patient Care Coordinator

Hannah grew up in Heber Springs and moved to NWA while she was in elementary school. She is married, has a beautiful daughter and two fur babies. She loves spending time with her family outdoors and taking part in community events like the farmer’s market. She started a book club (“The Bookfast Club”), and loves to support local charities including “Beautiful Lives Boutique” which aims to support women-owned businesses and charities. Hannah fell into dentistry by a happy accident. She always had a passion for the medical field and when she started as an assistant she knew that dentistry was the field for her. She strongly believes that all patients deserve the best and high quality care, regardless of their background, and she always takes such great care of our patients.


Certified Dental Assistant

Originally from El Salvadore, Mirna is fluent in Spanish. She grew up in New York City before settling here in Bentonville, AR with her hubby, Marvin, and their four legged kids. One of the main reasons they chose Arkansas is so that they can do what they love… spend lots of time outdoors hiking and boating. We are so proud of our Mirna and Marvin for their recent purchase of their very own home, which they are busy getting ready for to welcome their little baby. Mirna became a dental assistant because she believes people should get the best dental care possible, a philosophy that strongly aligns with ours. She is an exceptional and experienced dental assistant, great communicator, and always takes great care of our patients.
